AMA Adopts New Telemedicine Policy

The American Medical Association (AMA) recently adopted a telemedicine policy that encourages physicians to establish legitimate in-person relationships, that may include in-person consultation, before implementing and pursuing a treatment plan via telemedicine.  AMA's policy also recommends that a physician delivering care via telemedicine be licensed in the state in which the patient receives the treatment.
